The Wilderness Act's Midlife Crisis

read
As we approach the legislation's 50th birthday, it's time to rethink the wild

In September 1964, Congress passed the Wilderness Act, which created a national system of protected natural areas. As environmental legislation goes, it is uncompromising. The definition of wilderness provided by the act is "an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.” But today, in the face of climate......read more

Celebrating the Great Laws of '64

Fifty years of justice and compassion

William deBuys for TomDispatch.com: The Wilderness Act turns 50 Let us now praise famous laws and the year that begat them: 1964. The first thing to know about 1964 was that, although it occurred in the 1960s, it wasn’t part of “the Sixties.” The bellbottoms, flower power, LSD, and craziness came later, beginning about 1967 and extending into the early 1970s. Trust me: I was......read more

I used to live in Carrboro, North Carolina—a town that has a lot going for it in terms of sustainability. (So much so, that it was the chosen image for one of Zach's posts about car-free living.) But despite my knowledge of its urban farm tours and goat-powered landscaping companies, I wasn't aware of one important fact: Carrboro has long had policies in place to nurture and protect......read more

When Humans Declared War on Fish

read
By Paul Greenberg and Boris Worm

ON Friday we humans observed V-E Day, the end to one part of a global catastrophe that cost the planet at least 60 million lives. But if we were fish, we would have marked the day differently — as the beginning of a campaign of violence against our taxonomic classes, one that has resulted in trillions of casualties. Oddly, the war itself was a great reprieve for many marine species. Just......read more

Forty years ago, it looked like green sea turtles might not make it. They got entangled in fishing wire; humans killed them for meat, oil, leather, and their shells; coastal developments destroyed their habitats; plastics and debris choked them to death. In 1978, the U.S. government listed breeding colonies on the Pacific Coast of Mexico and in Florida as endangered. Now the green sea......read more

If Technology Helps Us Save The Wilderness, Will The Wilderness Still Be Wild?

IF you ever have the good fortune to see a Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep, the experience might go like this: On a sunny morning in Yosemite National Park, you walk through alpine meadows and then up a ridge to the summit of Mount Gibbs at 12,764 feet above sea level. You unwrap a chocolate bar amid breathtaking views of mountain and desert and then you notice movement below. Binoculars reveal......read more

The Expansion of Oil and Gas Exploration in Alaska

By Christopher Solomon Several years ago a mapping expert pinpointed the most remote place in the Lower 48 states. The spot was in the southeast corner of Yellowstone National Park, 20 miles from the nearest road. Roman Dial read the news and wasn’t much impressed. To him, 20 miles — the distance a hungry man could walk in a long day — didn’t seem very remote at......read more
